No. It means that they are not to be caught up in the race to acquire more things than the neighbors, or have more popularity or power to control other ‛s free agency.1  
 
This way to wealth, fame,
glory, power, popularity,
and more !
 
  Oh no it ‛s not. I can
see that now.
 
     
  2 Nephi 9:30  
  The things of this world decay, rust, can be stolen, and are left behind when we leave this mortality, and will give us no points, prestige, or preferential treatment in the life to come. ( Matt 6:19-21 ; 16:26 )   I was wealthy in life,
but now my sack is
empty. Where did you
get all the stuff ? I
thought “ you can ‛t take
it with you.”
 
     
  Oh, this isn ‛t
stuff, it ‛s earned
blessings.
 
1 Matt 6:33 ; D&C 6:7
